Miss Veedol’s arrival in Misawa Japan is
better late than never. That’s how officials with the Spirit of Wenatchee group feel about the delay in getting
the historic aircraft replica shipped overseas. The group has sent a delegation of members to Misawa to join up
with the aircraft which arrived there late last week by ship. Spirit of Wenatchee group President, Scott Carter
talked with Wenatchee Bureau Chief Steve Hair Monday while waiting for their flight at Seatac Airport . Miss
Veedol was the plane piloted by Clyde Pangborn in 1931 on the World’s first non-stop trans-Pacific flight from
Japan to East Wenatchee.
